Birthday celebrations

We've had so much fun celebrating Miss Maddy turning 1. I still can't believe she's already 1 year old. She was all smiles when she woke up the morning of her birthday!

All dressed for her photo shoot!!!
She loves her new chair! Now she doesn't have to climb in brother's chair all the time and upset him!
We had a family birthday party for her on her birthday. She seemed to enjoy the icing on the cake, but she didn't really figure out that she could eat the cake part also.
Joseph sure enjoyed his piece of cake and kept asking for it all morning!

Joseph enjoyed the icing too! :)
Nan and Pop came to celebrate on M's special day!

Returning home from the photo shoot. She was ready to open her presents!

A week later (Sat. the 26th) we had a friends birthday party for her. Joseph was so cute watching the slideshow we had playing on the tv.
Party favors for the girls....
Princess crown cookies....
And favors for the boys....
A special thanks to my mom for all her hard work helping me decorate....

And another piece of cake on her party day. This made me bib and no tray/table. YIKES! He managed to stay clean somehow! :)
Opening her gifts from friends...

Some of Maddy's friends....

We love our sweet girl!
And our sweet boy!
She loved playing in the box....
Here are just a few pics from the photo shoot that I mentioned she went to on the morning of her birthday. Miss Madelyn got so many compliments for being such a good model an being so happy and sweet. The photographer kept saying "She's doing great and she's of the best babies we've photographed". Of course I agreed! :) I ordered several of these pictures and will certainly treasure them forever! We look forward to watching both Madelyn and Joseph grow another year and celebrating many more birthdays.

Oh yeah, one more little fact about our sweet little girl. She took her first couple of steps just 2 days after her birthday! Now, a week later, she's walking all around and across all the rooms in our house!
